I love Buffalo wings, who doesn’t? So why not bring the taste of Buffalo style chicken wings to your lunch. Here’s a simple but yummy Buffalo Style Chicken Salad recipe that all can enjoy. These chicken tenders are skinless, boneless chicken breast coated in your favorite buffalo wing style sauce then tossed on top of a salad for a wholesome lunch with a kick. My kids can’t get enough of them…plus I trick them into eating these tasty chicken tenders on top of a leafy salad with their favorite ranch dressing for a healthy twist.
Stay focused on your game…
